Curriculum Vitae

Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA

Hey 🖐️
I’m a Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Robotics at the University of Michigan, happily supervised by Dmitry Berenson! My research spans Robotics, Machine Learning and Optimal Control. My primary focus is to develop systems capable of safe operation under uncertainty. Downstream applications of my work range from self-driving cars to robotic manipulators in human-shared environments.

I obtained a M.Eng. in Aeronautical Engineering from Imperial College London. While there, I collaborated with Panagiotis Angeloudis on developing control policies for autonomous vehicles, and with Yiannis Demiris on embuing robotic manipulators with assistive capabilities.

Open to collaborations, reach me via email!
